Description 

One of the newest additions to the Jungle, this area lies about 5 to 10 minutes past the Upper Jungle area and shares the same approach. A good sized crag with cracks and steep faces. Rock quality varies, but is generally solid with the wall ranging from 35 to 60 feet in size.

Getting There 

Drive past the Upper Jungle parking area through the switch backs until the road flattens out. Twenty meters on the right is a turnout marked with a large white limestone cairn. Pull in here. Across or south of the road is a U.S.F.S. orange "cutting unit boundry" sign. Behind this tree is a well engendered trail across the forest floor to the end of the Upper Canopy area. It is flat and easy with a minimum of talus. It terminates at a very large rock cairn. Look back north at the easy and short descent through talus to good climbing.

If climbing and parked at the Upper Jungle parking lot, following cairns past the Lucy in the Sky. Continue across the talus of the Upper Jungle until you reach a small incline. Follow this to its apex. The Upper Canopy begins here with the mixed route Monkey Hips and Rice. The area is the smaller, most remote region of the wall.

Monkey On My Back 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  UT : Jungle, on the Aquarius Pla... : Upper Canopy
Start low on the easy face to reach the first bolt. This avoids the very loose blocks at the base of the arete and keeps everybody safer. Make sure you clip the second bolt prior to a fun filled romp up steep to over hanging good rock and a turn or two around the arete. The moves after the second and just past the third bolt are cruxie but the pump will not let up until you reach the anchor. This is a photogenic line for those who, unlike me, have a good camera....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
